Dry needling can be used to help you with your TMJ by deactivating trigger points in your masseter muscle.  This is the main muscle in your jaw.  It can also be used to relax the muscle above the jaw joint and around the ear (parietal muscles and temporalis muscles).

Dry needling helps by inserting needles into the origin and insertion of jaw muscles.  It can also insert them into the belly or centre of the jaw muscles to relax them.

Dry needling would also be used in other areas of the body to treat TMJ these points would be used to:

increase your serotonin levels to decrease your stress.

decrease your adrenalin and cortisol levels to decrease your stress.

This is because a lot of TMJ problems are related to stress that is affecting your consciously or subconsciously.

Does it Hurt?

Some sensitive patients do feel some discomfort when the needles first go in, but most people are pleasantly surprised at how comfortable dry needling therapy is, often falling asleep on the treatment table. The needles are generally between 0.2 and 0.25mm in width. Five of these fit in the bore of one hyperdermic needle….they are as fine as a human hair!

They are inserted quickly to minimize skin pain, and when correctly stimulated, there is a feeling of tingling, mild cramping or an electric sensation at the point.

How deep the needles are inserted varies from a few millimetres to a couple of inches or more depending on the size of the patient and where the point lies on the body.
